How old are you? Before you respond, there might be more than one answer. We have all noticed that there are always some individuals who seem to age slowly, have plenty of energy and vitality and don’t suffer from too many diseases. There is a reason for this.
The first answer to this question is of course your astronomical age, the number of times the Earth has rotated on its axis or around Sol. If this metric was relevant then we might all age in precisely the same manner. There is another metric that likely offers a more realistic measure of biological age and offers some indication about your likely longevity. Fitness Age!
This measure was created by Ulrik Wisloff and his team from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. It takes into account your respiratory health with such measures as heart rate and weight, bodily dimensions, exercise routine and little more.
This test is hosted by and managed by the university and has no advertising or “payment options”.
There are a number of reasons why this test is significant. The lower your Fitness Age relative to your astronomical age, the lower your mortality risk and that has to be a good thing. Secondly you can use the “Back” key to alter the inputs and see what changes to your lifestyle mean to your effective mortality risk.
